Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Adaptive symbol discrimination for optical multilevel signal distorted in a constellation map is proposed. A 50-Gb/s 16-level optical quadrature amplitude modulation signal is demodu-lated with a bit error rate less than forward error correction limit.
